Clint Darden sat down to interview Norik Vardanian.
I posted this to the ATG Facebook yesterday, but since then it was submitted multiple times too. So why not post it here for everyone to see.
Part 1 is about how Norik got started with weightlifting, as well as his error of training too heavy too often.
In Part 2 below he talks about the differences in Armenian vs. American weightlifting mentality/conditions.
Update: Norik’s Opinion on How to Teach Beginners
- no bar body contact at first
- know how to miss a weight
- lot of Overhead Squats for flexibility
Update: In the next part he talks about Basic Training vs Competition Preparation.
On his father Yurik Vardanian, Olympics, Mental Toughness.
Update: Norik on Knee Pain.
Norik is a really nice guy 🙂 I hope he can progress further.
Ivan Bista says
cool cat. He and I share the same background, from basketball to weightlifting, haha.
